Covington is going to drown Lawler in his own blood 

This is not going to be an ordinary fight. Covington claimed that he is going to drown Lawler in his own blood for leaving his team. Lawler left the American Top Team (ATT) after losing his title to his teammate Tyron Woodley. 

“Robbie had everything. I had to earn everything at ATT the hard way. Robbie had all the training partners. They were flying in training partners, all the best coaches, paying for whatever”. Covington told MMA Junkie

“The funding for him and his training camps was out of this world. No one had ever had that at ATT” he added. Covington believes Lawler should not have left the team after all they have done for him. 

Online sportsbooks in the UK also believe that Covington is the favorite contender to win this match. Covington will bring everything he got into the octagon. Not only to punish Lawler but to punch his ticket to a fight against the UFC Welterweight Champion, Kamaru Usman.
